Rotational Power Training

twistAll athletic movements involve a rotational component, creating twisting movements through concentric muscular contractions (baseball swing, shot put) or resisting rotational movements/stabilising the torso through isometric contractions.

The ability to concurrently generate and transfer power in the torso originates from the core. The core includes the muscles of the abdominals, lower back, pelvic floor and hips. In the simplest terms: rotational training = core training = total body power training.
